Wow, the week has come and gone and I have done a really bad job keeping up with this blog of thankful thoughts. Not that I haven't had time to reflect but time to journal. Andy was able to get away this week to work on his doctoral paper and so things around here were a bit more busy and crazy. This brings me to
#14 I am thankful to have my husband to walk this journey of life with me. He is such a wonderful husband and father. He loves me and our girls and is committed to being a part of our daughters lives and he has a wonderful relationship with them!
Andy returned home on Thursday evening and had a wonderful time of retreat away and got a lot of work done. Finishing chapter 5 ( he only has 6 chapters total and he has his thoughts pulled together for the most part with chapter 6 so now he will just have to write it). This brings me to thankful #15 & #16.
#15 Thankful for people willing to share their 2nd home so that Andy can get away, refresh and work on his paper.
#16 Thankful that Andy is on track for getting his paper finished before the end of the year. This process really wasn't as bad as I thought it might be.
Well, Friday brought us to Ariana's first day of official high school swim practice and the start of many hours at the pool, a place that she loves. Both girls will be on totally different schedules until Feb/March so we will really be savoring every moment we have as a family.
This brings me to #17 I am thankful that both Ariana & Alexa enjoy spending time with us and thankful for the time that we have together!
